Fans banned from F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix
(FASTNEWS | COLOMBO) – The Italian government has banned spectators from attending this weekend’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the historic Imola track.
Imola had hoped to allow 13,000 spectators into the track on Saturday and Sunday but the rise of coronavirus cases across Italy has forced a U-turn.
The government has banned crowds at events among a raft of other measures to slow the spread of the virus.
F1 said it “understands and respects the decision taken by the authorities”.
